Bubby Upton's New Room

This week is a little tribute for our bub-to-be who is due next week!
Each day will be a different aspect of decorating a nursery.

Starting off is our nursery, which I just love. We are so blessed to have a new house which we moved into just before christmas, and I have been decorating the nursery ever since. It is directly opposite our room so bub is going straight here when he/she comes home!

The nursery is a room which is not just for Bub but for Bren & myself as well (As I'll be spening a lot of time feeding in there!). So I've kept away from bright colours and prints, the bub can have that when they're older!
The colour palette is soft greys and whites with little punches of turquoise. We had to make the room gender neutral, so it's likely I'll add a little more colour once the bub arrives. Everything is birds & nests! So cute. We've stuck to a budget with a few splurge items so I've tried to let you know where you can find all the bits and pieces!

My sis made the gorgeous mobile that sits about the change table. And my friend Pip made the large owl toy. So many clever people! I ordered the artwork wholesale but you can find similar at

The wall colour is Taubmans "Foxdale", trims in Dulux "Antique White USA"

Cot & change table in simple white, you can find it at Target or Babies Galore or even Ebay - and they ALWAYS go on sale so keep your eyes peeled :) At the moment I have LOADS of white sheets but can always add colour here.

Wall sticker we ordered from Etsy. This was the first thing we did after the painting and set the bird theme going!

I love this little shelf, not sure what to fill those tiny drawers with but I'm sure I'll find something! Shelf from Freedom, baskets from Bed, Bath & Table.

My splurge item... Custom made armchair and ottoman!

The chair fabric is Warwick Loft Granite, and the ottoman is Marco Bracken Navy. Then the same fabrics used for the contrast piping.

It is SO comfy and will work in our lounge room when the kiddies are older! And I love it next to the big window the sun comes shining in just after lunch and it is a great place to sit :)

Curtains are readymade from Freedom on a pole from Spotlight.

So there's our nusery! Check back each day this week for more nursery ideas!
